Obama’s Aunt Update: ‘The System Took Advantage of Me’

The entitlement mentality is strong with this one:

“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.” Those are the words from 58-year-old Zeituni Onyango of Kenya in a recent exclusive interview with WBZ-TV.

Onyango is the aunt of President Barack Obama. She has been living in the United States illegally for years, receiving public assistance in Boston.
[...]
Zeituni Onyango said she came to the United States in 2000 and had every intention of leaving. Then, however, she says she got deathly ill and was hospitalized. When she recovered, she said she was broke and couldn’t afford to leave.

For two years Onyango said she lived in a homeless shelter, before she was moved into public housing. “I didn’t take advantage of the system. The system took advantage of me.”

“I didn’t ask for it; they gave it to me. Ask your system. I didn’t create it or vote for it. Go and ask your system,” she said unapologetically.

I won’t bother to ask how a poverty-stricken person (and an illegal one for that matter) could have possibly been hospitalized and apparently successfully treated pre-Obamacare, back when the poor were left to die in the gutter.

Hope & Change are truly dead. Even a relative of the president and illegal alien who was ultimately granted legal status and lived off the US taxpayer dime the entire time (and continues to) is bitching about “the system.” Auntie Onyango sounds like she’s just a job and an overcomplicated tax return away from joining the Tea Party.

For the record, I agree with Onyango — the system is broken. She wouldn’t agree with me as to why, but it’s a start.

A little history on Auntie Onyango here.
